Valley Life Church

Greetings Church Family,

Well, our congregations are officially together! This past Sunday, September 10, 2023, our congregations voted to become one. This coming weekend, we will enjoy our first Sunday gathering together as Valley Life Church at 10:15 AM. We are extremely thankful to God for His guidance, grace, and wisdom throughout the process. Additionally, we are beyond excited to see what God has in store for us in the future. May God use this marriage to make his name known throughout the valley, the Pacific Northwest, and the world.


We also just wanted to communicate some next steps:

  • Membership: Each current member has up to 30 days to review and sign the statement of beliefs and covenant to become a member of good standing at Valley Life Church. After 30 days, you will have to follow the membership process outlined in our bylaws which are: completing a new member class, share a testimony of conversion, give date of baptism by immersion and sign statement of beliefs and covenant to become a member.

  • Transition Team: We would like to develop a Transition Ministry Team who will work alongside the Pastoral Team to make sure that this marriage is successful. We are looking for 3-6 individuals to pray and serve our body for the next year. The goal is for Valley Life Church to work together as a vibrant, healthy expression of Christ's body, the church to impact Columbia Falls, the Valley and the World.


As, we start a brand new journey together, please pray that we accomplish God’s will in ways that please and honor Him. Let’s pray that people who are far from God will find life in him as a result of the merging of our two churches.
